Trucks Will Return To Rockingham In 2013

Kahne won last year's race
After staging the most talked-about event of the 2012 NASCAR season to date, Rockingham Speedway President Andy Hillenburg made it official today; confirming that the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will return to “The Rock” on April 12-14, 2013.
“We got our report card from NASCAR, and it looks like we got an A+,” said Hillenburg of NASCAR’s  April return to Rockingham for the first time since 2004. Sprint Cup Series star Kasey Kahne topped an all-star field of Camping World Truck Series regulars to win the `Good Sam Roadside Assistance Carolina 200 presented by Cheerwine,’ in front of a large and enthusiastic crowd of race fans.
“Fans, drivers, teams; everyone embraced our 2012 event,” said Hillenburg. “I’m happy to announce that with their help, we’ll do it again in 2013; bigger and better than ever before.”
General admission tickets are already on sale, with adult tickets beginning at just $20 and kids age 12 and under half-price. Reserve your seats now by calling the Rockingham Speedway ticket office at (910) 205-8800, or online at
“It’s been a long road back since we bought this race track in 2007,” said Hillenburg. “There were a few times along the way where I wasn’t sure we were going to make it. But when I looked up in the grandstands during driver introductions in April, it made me extremely proud. That was a very important day in the history of Rockingham Speedway, but it was just one step on the road. We’re moving forward, and I look forward to packing the grandstands again next April.
“The Rock is back, and we’re looking forward to another great race on April 14, 2013.”

    Great to hear a return to Rockingham is in place. Although I live in the far regions of Canada, it has always held a special meaning to me, as the very first NASCAR race I watched as a kid was the 1989 AC-Delco 500...Mark Martins first win.I became an instant fan of both track and driver. I told my wife I still HAVE to attend a race there. I cant wait for the opportunity...
